Elevate & Influence: San Francisco’s Premier Event for Women in Sales

  • Autodesk Gallery 1 Market Street #200 San Francisco, CA 94105 United States (map)

For women in the United States, being a successful sales professional is about more than selling products or services; it's about overcoming a unique set of obstacles and shattering the status quo. It's no longer good enough to sell like a boss. It's time to BE a boss.

As San Francisco's first resource dedicated solely to the interests of women sales professionals, National Association for Women Sales Professionals is a cross-industry organization representing the interests of women.

Join us at the San Francisco chapter's launch party and enjoy a lively panel discussion focused on selling best practices, the future of women in sales and becoming a power influencer. Network with other sales professionals while enjoying delicious appetizers, complimentary beverages, including beer and wine, and inspiring conversation.

Get motivated to elevate your professional status along with other women in the Bay Area and partner together to gain influence in the marketplace.
